government has said it would not negotiate with them. >> according to the information, there are 20 terrorists in the base. we believe they take their orders -- i do not believe they came from mali or libya. this is a revenge attack aimed at foreign countries participating in the operation in mali. >> look no further than the attack on rebels in mali. algeria had given permission for such warplanes to fly over its airspace. the leader of the group that attacked the installation made it clear that this was revenge. >> this is a crisis affecting nationals not just from france, but several other countries. >> the best information we have at this time is that u.s. citizens are among the hostages. i hope you will understand that in order to protect their safety i am not going to get into numbers, i am not going to get into names, i am not going to get into any further details. >> at this point we do not wish to speculate who is behind this or what may be their motive. tonight the task is to get our countrymen home safe. >> which are in close touch with the algerian government. the judge

minister tell the house what the government is doing to keep pensioners warm in this cold weather, and will he join me in congratulating the suffolk foundation for the success, for the great success of their surviving -- [inaudible] >> what this government has done is, first of all,tive the biggest -- give the biggest increase in the state pension of five pounds, 30 last year. we've kept the cold weather payments at the high level, and we're replacing the warm front scheme, and while that helps something like 80,000 houses a year, the eco could help up to 230,000 houses a year. that is what we're doing, and it's a record we should be proud of. >> thank you, mr. speaker. the prime minister should know that the ons have recently released figures that show there were 24,000 extra cold weather deaths over the winter of 2010-2012. the majority of those who perished were over the age of 75. so, mr. speaker, can i ask the prime minister if he thinks his government should do more to help the elderly and the vulnerable and less to help millionaires with tax cuts? >> as i just said, we are
sure the government does not shut down. he tried to take that specter off the table. but this is a very tough fight that's getting more and more problematic, larry, because the president said he's going to break the habit of crisis-driven fiscal negotiations. if he's going to succeed in that, somebody is going to have to break and it may have to be soon because treasury secretary geithner said this afternoon we could hit the debt ceiling and exhaust all the extraordinary measures he's been taking as soon as one month from now. >> you know, john, 2010, 2011, the 2012 he negotiated. he voted against the debt ceiling i believe in 2006. why all of a sudden does he not want have to have negotiations? >> i think will's happened, larry, is that the president spent 2011 and 2012 with republicans squeezing him on his priorities, having opposed him during the first two years of his presidency. then that really had the wind at their back. the tea party election of 2010 had given republicans very big numbers on the hill. and he's decided that he backed up, and he backed up and he backed up, and he'
he does not want spending caughts and i dare say he would be happy to see in reverses in government spending. so that does not jive with what the house is doing. >> that is a fair point. some critics say inside of the house conference there is a real fight. they want to take these bold stances on the ten year balanced budget so they can get some leverage to fund the government when it comes up for a vote in a couple of week. >> no, i think they are doing the lord's work. thank you very much. we have a couple of special guests to tell us more. democrat from vermont, shawn duffy, republican from wisconsin. to both of you gentlemen friends of this show i wish you a happy new year. mr. boehner attached a bublg et to this. >> there are no specific cuts. where in medicare or the pentagon are they going to cut? they have to specify that before you can have a serious conversation. i don't think members of congress should be playing with fiscal fire which is what we are doing when we use a tactic as a threat to plunge america into defought. i believe that republicans and democrats should den
. twin blasts rocked the school, killing at least 80 people. rebel forces as the government bombed the campus deliberately. from neighboring turkey, james reynolds reports. >> the university of aleppo was thought to be one of the last safe places in syria of's largest city. but two explosions changed that. these pictures were filmed just after the blasts. the side of this building was blown away. the university was home to both students and ordinary people who had taken refuge from fighting elsewhere in aleppo. the browns are in an area of grounds nt control -- brow are in an area under government control, but activists say it was the government to fired. >> this is the signal of the government. >> the government denies this. it says that the explosions were carried out by terrorists. it has been almost two years of fighting in syria. aleppo has been the scene of intense conflicts between the government and rebels. neither have been able to force the other to retreat for good. no corner of the city is safe. james reynolds, bbc news, is double. -- istanbul. >> lance armstrong has al
kidnapped an unconfirmed number of workers on wednesday. the governments of japan, france, and norway have said their citizens were among the captives. the militants demanded that france end its military campaign in neighboring mai. theyhreatened to leave the country and take the hostages with them so the security forces moved in. a number of hostages and militants were killed during the operation. >> translator: the algerian authorities informed me about the developments of the situation on a regular basis. i don't have enough information yet to evaluate it. >> japan's chief cabinet secretary says government officials have been in contact with managers at a japanese engineers firm. employees of jgc corporation work at the plant. they confirm the safety of three japanese nationals. there's conflicting information on 14 others. >>> fear fighting prompted an emergency meeting on thursday in mali. eu foreign ministers med and agreed to speed up preparations for a mission deployment in mali. the armed forces of france launched a military intervention. extremists are already in control of the n

government falling, meaning a security force that's unable to secure the country. >> i think back to i re-read barbara tuckman's book. at one point a british leader asked a french leader how many troops they needed early in the war and the french leader said just one and i'll make sure he gets killed. the point he was making was commitment. i think it's less about how many american forces are there. it's actually even not important how many american dollars or technology is there. there's this intangible commitment, the idea that we are reliable. i like to describe it almost as a line of credit that a business has. they really don't want to draw on it, but having it knows that they can maintain the solvency of the business. the afghans are terrified right now. >> if we lose afghanistan, what do we really lose? people have made the point time and time again al qaeda as a threat is no longer in country, the taliban itself could be part of the government and as much as the united states may hate that, the united states forces were not there just to protect women and we'll leave even if women

, i think the government could have difficulty defending a law the highest court to consider the assault weapons ban was the u.s. court of appeals for the d.c. circuit and it recently upheld a ban in d.c. the court assumed the weapons were in common use but the ban imposed no real burden on the people's ability to a firearm for self-defense. similarly, it applies to a restriction on high-capacity magazines, which we treat separately than an assault weapons ban. what a ban on the sale of high- capacity magazines, capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition be unconstitutional? i think it is a similar analysis. common use? , used for self-defense? it upheld the restriction on the sale of high-capacity magazines as well. yes, they are probably in common use. yes, there are millions and millions of these high-capacity magazines out there -- however, the court says self-defense typically does not require more than 10 rounds of ammunition. and there remains issues of fit, whether it substantially ferber's -- recent data suggest that the 1994 ban did have an impact, that th
citizens. do we really want doctors reporting to the federal government if they think somebody might have violent tendencies? do we want to discourage people that have mental health issues to see their doctor because they may be part of a national law enforcement database? how is that going to prevent any crime? you know a tiny fraction of murders occur from mentally ill people. there is no connection between reality and the president is proposing, whether it's newtown, violence on the street. what we need is criminal control. it's not a problem with mentally ill people or people that legally have arms, it's not a problem with a whole bunch of people, but this thing seems to address. here is the bigger problem. not only does he use the obamacare law to force doctors to report on their patients -- by the way, here is a question. let's say a doctor doesn't report on a patient because he doesn't think the patient is dangerous. that patient goes out and kills somebody. the family. person that was killed, that doctor a legal obligation under obama's legislation to reported it and -- says, i di
crisis. what are the consequences? welcome. i'm ali velshi. the government has paid its bills on time for 237 years and now congress is threatening to blow it. earlier this week, the ratings agency fitch threatened to downgrade america's sovereign credit rating if washington failed to resolve the issue in a timely manner. s&p downgraded america's perfect credit rating back in august of 2011. fitch didn't do it at the time. but the last time we had one of these debt ceiling debacles that embarrassment was the first downgrade of u.s. credit in history. if congress doesn't act and we default for the first time ever, the consequences are likely to be severe for all of us. federal interest costs would likely rise, business and personal borrowing costs would probably follow. it would also make the struggle to manage our historic debt levels tougher. the worst thing that can happen if you're beck lg under debt, is for your interest rate to go up. it could mean higher taxes and more cults to programs and services from the government. any hope for a controlled fix to our debt problem would be
avenue today over the national debt and government spending. the opening shots came from president obama at his white house news conference. >> i thought it might make sense to take some questions this week as my first term comes to an end. >> brown: the questions were dominated by the looming debt ceiling fight. the president sternly warned republicans not to balk at raising the nation's borrowing limit. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is running short. >> brown: congress has until march to raise the debt ceiling and prevent a government default. most republicans have insisted that with the government facing another trillion dollar deficit this year, any increase in borrowing authority must be tied to cuts in spending. the president flatly disagreed. >> i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing m

[applause] >> thank you so much for coming out here. i just came in from new york. great to be here. i am going to start by talking about my book and then go into -- which focuses on coca and coca policy and how that is relevant especially this week with what is going on at the un and the history of the tree that prohibits coca around world. my book started as a children's book. it started as a follow-up to a children's book about marijuana in 2004-2005. it wasn't a book about teaching kids how to smoke weed. it was uneducated -- it occasional book about how to talk to your kids about the cult subject that they might run into. that is why the format is like an illustrated picture book for kids that as i got deeper into the subject and started looking into coca which
ought to cancel this because it's never going to work. here's how an efficient government is. this last week we spend another hundred million dollars before they canceled it. they paid a settlement fee of $8 million. but two things didn't happen. the person responsible didn't get fired and wasn't held accountable in the company that didn't provide the service didn't get sued to get our money back, taxpayers of the country. nobody runs their household that way. the state government don't operate that way, but we are totally incompetent when it comes to spending america's taxpayer money. why would we continue to a $32 billion a year on i.t. programs that don't work for the federal government. but 60% of what they take out of the pentagon and that's governmentwide. why would we do that? were going to have a special senate committee to look at this, oversight, look at bad actors in government and demand the people get fired in the company is not performing pay the money back. none of that happens. so you can defraud the federal government. you can do it with impunity and that's because memb

overseeing the pre- trial hearing of alleged army whistleblower bradley manning has ruled the government must prove manning wanted to aid the enemy as prosecutors have alleged. on wednesday, colonel denise lind told prosecutors to prove that manning knew or should have known the documents he's accused of passing to wikileaks would end up being seen by members of al qaeda. lind also granted a defense request to present evidence that manning carefully selected documents he knew would not harm the united states. manning has previously offered to plead guilty to releasing documents if the government drops its most serious charges, including aiding the enemy. also on wednesday, defense attorneys tried to argue for the case's dismissal on the grounds manning has been denied the right to a speedy trial. by the time his trial begins in june, manning will have been in detention for 1101 days, nearly 10 times the maximum allowed by military rules between arrest and trial. a group of foreign and algerian workers have been taken hostage in algeria in what their kidnappers call retaliation for the french
with republicans on raising the government's borrowing limit in return for cuts to government spending. the u.s. faces a new deadline of potentially defaulting on its debt next month unless the debt ceiling can be increased. republicans have maintained their stance that any borrowing hike must be offset by slashing government spending. add is what does this conference on monday, obama called the republican demand unacceptable. >> republicans in congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly of america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. the full faith and credit of the u.s. is not a bargaining chip. >> the death toll from the syrian government airstrike on a northern town has reached at least 20 people in addition to around 100 wounded. the victims were gathered in the public market when syrian warplanes bombed them from the sky sunday. the group doctors without borders says t

the spending cut fight on the upcoming continuing resolution to fund the government. >> i didn't hear any focus on spending cuts. and i didn't hear any focus on the sequester. and i'm looking at rasmussen polls that show me that the public wants across-the-board spending cuts. and you and i both know the republican base is hungry for that after getting hosed in that high tax bill. >> i think you're a bit off, larry, respectfully in that republicans i think want to have these spending cuts. but they're picking a strategic battle. and you could be right in saying they're picking the wrong battle. but they don't want to have the spending battle on the debt limit. they want to have it on the cr, that continuing resolution to fund the government for the rest of the year. >> well, i am 100% -- look, i do not want to mess with the debt ceiling. i don't want to mess with that. that's a domestic and international global meltdown. so to that extent i agree. i just didn't hear the rest of the story laid out very coherently regarding spending. i didn't hear it from paul ryan, and i didn't hear it from the
their individual wealth and privileges to cooperate fully with the confederate government struggling to protect the interests of slave owners as a whole. and those are aspects of the book that i'm discussing with you today. but this evening i'd like to talk to you about the most important fissure that ran through the house of dixie, slavery, and the three ways slavery figured in the origin and the progress of the o civil war. first of all, the war's central cause. secondly, as a crucial source of military power deployed during that war. and, third, slavery's erosion during the war and its destruction both of those things as an eventual union goal. the destruction of slavery as an eventual conscious, deliberate union goal. so let's start with cause. as you may know, in a recent national survey half of all those people, half of all those americans when were polled deny that slavery was the main cause of the u.s. civil war. and that view is apparently gaining ground, not losing ground. because among younger people polled, those below 30 years of age, fully three out of five denied slavery's centra
that the president was going to slow down on some government initiatives, think again. we will get into the details in the second. here is how it was received across the globe. u.s. futures are up about 19 points. similar gains in the s&p 500 and nasdaq. the nasdaq. the first two are already at five year highs. the nasdaq is a long way from that. it has more to do with their currency, the nikkei is up. less to do with the inauguration of barack obama today. but perhaps it was something that would get in the way of some of the good economic fortunes they see downwind. the markets little dissuaded by anything that happened today. despite concerns that republicans feel that they are going to get the short of the stick -- short end of the stick from the president. chuck schumer is the latest essay, to say, as you know, if it comes to another budget that will be stressful, republicans may not like it, but they will have to deal with it. i will have more on the attitude in the approach of the president. i didn't see anything shocking or the president. he is kind of echoing what he already has said. maybe
under the flag today. so the question is whether the institutions in the way that the government has dominated and if you will corrupted the independence of the institutions will last even if we went to the election if they declare that he dies tomorrow which there is a rumor that they would do that actually going around now, that if he would be declared dead and they called an election within 30 days and the opposition won, meaning the sympathy vote for the candidate which is difficult after what we saw on december 16th and dhaka election we just talked about, chavez has 20 of 23 governors. 11 of the governors that were run by the chavez party are former military officials, including four ministers of defense, who are now governors of their respective states. several of them are all along the office of the control campaign list because of their work with the farc so we have a situation where people are in control of things, so that even if henry embrey de four e elected president in this election it's the opposite -- he's the head of the opposition who ran against chavez and got a 4

the government. the first troops from the african-led mission are due to arrive today. >> for more, we are joined by our brussels correspondent. the eu has agreed to send military personnel. do we have any idea what this mission will look like? >> it is important to stress first of all that the idea is not new. back in december, they agreed they saw the situation and said they would send down a couple of hundred instructors -- of around 200 instructors -- to train the army, and now, of course, in light of recent developments, this mission will be sped up, which means 200 instructors or 250 will be sent down. they will instruct the army in terms of basic military training, but also in the field of international and humanitarian law and how to protect civilians. there are not many details yet in the number -- and the number of people deployed to the ground could rise again. all we know is that the training mission will be led by a french commander. >> how has the mission been affected by the hostage situation? >> we have heard from our paris correspondent and everyone here in brussels agrees this c
see so much potential, so many amazing people, and we in city government have an opportunity to address so many problems and make so many things better. the campaign was a learning experience on so many levels. beyond that, i think you've learned something about yourself when you are putting yourself out there through the political process. i was very lucky that i had that opportunity because where i come from something as basic as free, democratic elections, that is a luxury. people participate in the democratic process. that is something that is quite amazing and remarkable. i think that you do not fully appreciate it if you have had it all your life. whereas someone who came from a place where that was not possible, i think that i have a unique appreciation for it. it was really an exciting thing to do. >> where would you place yourself now on the political spectrum? the left, the right? supervisor campos: i think the labels can mean a lot of different things. i see myself as someone who ultimately has tried to make things better for people. i have a progressive outlook in

, you would be willing to risk not raising debt ceiling, producing a partial government shut down, to make that point? >> absolutely. i would much rather bring on a controlled problem, right now that perhaps could lead to us a solution for the greater problem. if we don't do this, neil,t and and i think you know, we'll have a debt collapse at some point in the future, at a time not of our chosing, en controlled and uncontrol able and we will not be able to fix it. in order to convince this president we need to reduce entitlement spending we have to go over the new cliff, if you will, for partial government shut down, i'll take that because we will prevent a bigger less controllable problem later. neil: will you be willing to take the blame, however unfairly it might be as producing the government shut down it so republicans that we have this financial anarchy? >> i hope what people would recognize, and people would realize, is that we cannot continue with trillion dollar deficits, period. the country will go in to a debt collapse. we will have problem like greece, like spain, like
the government takes in "x" number of dollars and it's lg willing to borrow "x" number of dollars, for the ceiling. for every $6 of $steb, it's borrowed money! we are spending less than we are taking in in revenue. at this point, that comes home to haunt you. i am saying the victims didn't nide the money, we don't need to spend $16 billion on things that don't have to do with victims. >> neil: bottom line, if there are other storms, we don't have a rainy-day fund. >> we don't. we can't by law have a rainy-delay fund -- have a rainy-day fund. wall street's numbers are down, in terms of taxes that we are collecting. the city's going to have to make up billions of dollars this year. what's the federal government going to do when that money is not in the coffers? >> neil: thank you very much. meanwhile, looking live at yet another school shooting at st. louis. this one, ahead of the president's new gun control plan. we are on at the eve of his assault weapons assault. how this and this debate could affect us. much more. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mm
at all. i think this was an exercise in showing that the government and the bank of japan, the central bank are on the same page. they certainly delivered that. i think the fact that it's an open-ended asset purchase program, it was more than what the markets had been factoring in. i think the dollar/yen moves are sort of moving independently right now. and i think a lot of that has to do with the comments that we had from government saying, oh, we're not trying to manipulate the currency, which throws into question this competitive devaluation story they were banking on. instead of being explicit about that over the last couple of weeks, now they're going to have to be a little bit more implicit about that. but the man of the hour, mr. shiraka shirakawa, the bank of japan, here is what he had to say. >> translator: japan believes growth is important. we teamed up with the dwoft to strengthen our policies and work on this goal together as one. >> let's take a look at the technicals about this 2% inflation target. because at the same time today, the bank of japan is saying the price of

majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often
